    They get a well balanced eating plan. I would imagine maintenance.

    One guy was 230 and deadlifted 630 lbs... The "coach" or whatever said he had what it took to be a competitive powerlifter? :hsugh:


    I wouldn't want to be around a bunch of huge fuckers who are doing 40 years for rape and robbery and deadlift 600 lbs thats for sure.

    My gf has a friend in prison, he claims he deadlifts close to 1,000 pounds. I'm going to have to call bullshit.

    one of my buddies was in prision and he got to lift weights but he had a buddy in the kitchen and they would just give him double meals. you can make friends in jail to do favors for you.

    If I owned a prison I would take away all their weights and make them do manual labor all day.

    I know they do this in alot of other countries, and they used to do it here. Then again the prison system is totally fucked up here so who cares.

    making people break rocks for 12 hours a day? its called cruel and unusual punishment, in the united states, inmates have more rights than citizens. It will never happen.

    there was a 20/20 report once about criminals that went in being skinny bishes, and when they came out after doing time for 5 years, they were jacked as fuck and committed worse crimes :ugh:

    still i'm sure those weights are responsible for more good than harm, some of those guys looked like they turned it around because they found a focus in their life, just like religion or a good woman :hs:

    There is a prison in AZ somewhere where the inmates are required to wear pink clothes, sleep on pink sheets, wear pink handcuffs, and DO MANUAL LABOR chain gang style.

    Thats the way it should be. Fuck the slobs who spend their time getting in better shape and getting more criminal connections.

    :werd: ....



    prisoners don't have to break rocks for 12 hours a day, I never said that :rolleyes: . They can do things that will benefit society with all their free time...some states have these programs but only for small offenders, and obviously lifers don't do it but who cares they aren't going anywhere.

    Prisons in CA don't have weights anymore, so inmates do bodyweight exercises or lift sand/water bags as weights.

    but the documentary on the discovery channel showed these inmates deadlifting as you would see at a meet, with everyone cheering and being supportive of one another, trying to break new records.
